    As the old saying goes, in so many ways, a picture speaks a thousand words. By now you have probably seen the chilling photo like the one shown in this media report of Delta Flight 1889 parked safely at the gate after diverting to Denver International Airport. This was the result of a nasty encounter with hail at 34,000 feet while en route from Boston to Salt Lake City last Friday evening. It makes little sense with today’s proven technology that any commercial aircraft should ever encounter such a hazardous situation and risk the lives of those on board. The crew of this…

    The ground-based radar mosaic displayed on the Map view in ForeFlight Mobile combines radar data from the National Weather Service (NWS) and Environment Canada. Its primary purpose is to provide pilots with a good estimation of where precipitation is occurring and where it’s not. While there are some holes in the coverage (especially in Canada) the radar mosaic is fairly accurate most of the time. Even so, non-precipitation returns generically called ground clutter can be displayed on the radar layer producing what looks like very real areas of precipitation. Anomalous propagation, or…

  • Why are some MEA’s unidirectional?

    renzoh
    30 Aug 2015 | 5:42 am
    Under IFR, you may use Victor airways to fly your intended route of flight.  These airways usually have a bidirectional MEA which makes sense to me.  But on occasion, you see a Victor airway that has a unidirectional MEA (one altitude for one direction and another altitude for the opposite direction).  What is the rationale behind this?  Why do they need to have different altitudes for the exact same route?

  • Podcast: New Hypoxia Training for TBM Owners

    25 Jul 2015 | 11:19 pm
    In tightly knit pilot communities, an accident often has profound effects on the group because most people in it know the accident pilot. That was definitely the case with the Larry Glazer TBM accident in 2014, in which the pilot became unresponsive, apparently due to hypoxia, and overflew his destination, crashing at sea near Jamaica. As a direct result of that accident, a Florida-based company, in cooperation with Daher, is developing a hypoxia training program specifically for TBM owners. According to Dr. Ian Blair Fries, who is working with Dr. Paul Buza on the project, the program may…

    ... you land at some little GA airport in the afternoon, because it happened to have a runway long enough, and it was equidistant from the various places you thought you might be asked to go the next day, and then you get a phone call at o-dark-hundred, and during flight planning you ask yourself, "Does the aerodrome have lighting?"

  • Birds on a Schedule

    19 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    A NOTAM (at some point it stood for NOTice to Airmen, but I think it's just a word now) is a bulletin advising pilots of non-meteorological hazards to aviation: e.g. runway closures, unlighted towers, air traffic control frequency outages, amended procedures, unserviceable navigation equipment or the presence of a nuisance bear at the airport. In Canada a NOTAM begins with the last two digits of the year it was issued, and then has more digits to make it a sequence number. I think the sequence is only unique for that "NOTAM file" -- the major airport under which all the NOTAM in an area are…

  • "My Frequency" Confession

    19 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    When flying IFR, a pilot "reads back" that is repeats back all the instructions we receive from air traffic control, to demonstrate that we have heard and accept the instruction, and to give the controller a chance to notice if we have heard incorrectly, or if the controller misspoke. It gets a little silly sometimes: the pilot asks for a particular clearance, the controller clears them for it, and the pilot reads it back again, but it prevents us from descending to five thousand when it's only safe down to nine thousand. When I say pilots talk to "air traffic control," we are only sometimes…

    Live video streaming apps such as Meerkat and Periscope have millions of users hooked already. While Meerkat was the category pioneer (and has about 2m users), Periscope – acquired by Twitter earlier this year – is arguably the category leader with a user base of 10m in under six months. Broadcasting content in real-time is not a new concept –YouTube and other video sites have had live streaming options for a while. However, Meerkat, and now Periscope, seem to have brought it to the masses. Earlier, it was restricted to savvy internet users or interest-based audiences such as gamers…
  • How to Make Apology Marketing Work for Your Airline

    Last month, I flew for the first time on GoAir, a domestic low-cost carrier in India. It was also the first time I heard a strange announcement that seems to be the practice on GoAir flights. I’m recalling from memory so do allow for some loss of precision: Ladies and gentlemen, we understand that you have a choice when you fly. Hence, we are thankful that you chose to fly GoAir today. Undoubtedly, the competition between airlines in India is stiff — the market is led by the much-loved low-cost carrier IndiGo (with almost 40% market share), and has recently seen new entrants such…

    The Incident Flying is not something humans are naturally comfortable with. Many of us are also instinctively afraid of heights. As such, some of us refuse to get on a plane; others do it apprehensively — and some look out of the window and see an engine being “repaired with duct tape”. This sight can trigger two reactions: an understandable fear for one’s own safety, and the need to tweet about it to let everyone know.

    Lots of flight diversions take place every week, due to minor reasons and major. Cathay Pacific flight 884, from Hong Kong to Los Angeles also diverted on July 29 this year, to the remote island of Shemya, in the north Pacific. While there was nothing extraordinary about the diversion, what caught attention was the video released by a passenger, detailing what went on inside the flight as it prepared to land. Even some frequent travellers may get goosebumps watching the video, where the passenger goes from confused about the situation, to nervous about potentially landing on water, to…

    I stopped running the other day to take this picture. It’s not often that I have my phone while I’m running, but this morning was different. My GPS watch was in my suitcase which was in my hotel room in Atlanta, but I spent the night at home. There’s a story there about pilot life, but that is not the point of this anecdote.

    What does a hero look like the day before he jumps on a hand grenade? I think it would be difficult to recognize. Heroism is a journey of a million small steps. I say “a million” glibly. In fact, no one knows how long the journey will be, but the phrase “a million” describes something immense and almost indeterminate. Because the journey is so long, the task of identifying the hero today, before tomorrow’s sacrifice, is almost impossible. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, so we don’t even attempt to enumerate these steps, to predict when the journey…

It is a fundamental element of the mission of mc2, and “Transforming” is a fundamental illustration and analogy in the branding of this company and website. So what does it mean?

  • models of variations in airspeed — ATOMs #15-14

    Mark Jones Jr
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:01 pm
    There are at least two ways to model variations in airspeed: as a random variable or as a stochastic model. Random Variable In the plot below of airspeed components (x,y), we can see variations both in the Orbis shape itself and in the inset, which shows the resultant vector from the components. In both cases, a normal distribution served as the model for the variations. Qualitatively, the model appears suitable, and it benefits from model simplicity. Stochastic Model In reality, however, the current airspeed of an aircraft is dependent on the airspeed a moment ago.  If the current airspeed…

    Is it a tool or a toy? In our recent article about the ICON A5 amphibian, a key point of debate was whether the airplane’s purpose as a purely recreational toy was a strength or a weakness. Some readers cheered the focus on fun, arguing that flying small airplanes should be about the experience and the freedom, not the utility. After all, there are faster and less expensive ways to get around than a Cessna 182 or a Cirrus. These pilots believe the relentless campaigns to justify airplanes as valuable business tools are misguided – just admit they’re fun, like motorcycles…

    John Zimmerman
    21 Aug 2015 | 7:09 am
    Based on our completely unscientific surveys, most ForeFlight pilots use the Airports and Maps tabs most often. That makes sense, because these two sections of the app have an incredible number of features that are useful for everyday flying. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the app can be ignored. In particular, the Imagery tab deserves more attention than most pilots give it – after a recent redesign and expansion, it’s more valuable than ever. Here’s how we use the page to do a solid weather briefing. Understand the flow Imagery has added a number of new weather…
  • New professional iPad battery backup is the best yet

    Bret Koebbe
    19 Aug 2015 | 10:03 am
    Running out of battery power is a nightmare scenario for many pilots flying with iPads. That’s why we always advise pilots to carry some type of backup power supply, even if you take off with your iPad battery at 100%. While a USB cigarette lighter plug works well for most applications, not all airplanes have a 12V plug and even the ones that do have one aren’t worth much in an electrical emergency. For those reasons, self-contained backup battery packs have been very popular iPad accessories for years. They can extend battery life on your iPad anywhere from 3-20 hours, and they are a…

    Keyboard and Rudder: A blog on the Art of Flying

    Keyboard & Rudder has been as silent as your local NDB antenna for over a month. It's not dead: I was just brain dead.In July, I was due for my annual simulator proficiency check, which meant a lot of studying and little time for writing. The summer flying season was in full swing, so I was up in the air working a lot. Also, in addition to the book I've been working on for a while, I started doing research for a new book at the same time. This has taken even more of the limited writing time available.I'm extremely excited about the new book, because if it comes out the way I would like it…
  • Goldilocks and the Three Descent Rates: Too much, too little, and just right

    Larry M. Coleman

    Recently, I created a video where I mash up Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Microsoft Flight Simulator X into a lesson on how to figure out where you're going to land, and whether you're going to be too high, too low, or just right. A viewer over at the Larry the Flying Guy YouTube channel asked what is too much of a descent rate in a small plane. Let's answer this, but first, the video:I make it a point to reply to comments on the channel (just as I do here), and in the course of replying, it became obvious that this was going to be too long a subject to fit into one comment.First, let's…
  • The gorilla in the cockpit

    3 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    Selective attention/blindness isn't just something husbands and teenagers have. Check out this video that demonstrates in only one minute why fixation in the cockpit is a bad thing:Multitasking was/is a popular buzzword beginning in the 1990s as people began to convince themselves that they really could do more than one thing at a time. As the video shows, this isn't really the case: you can really only do one thing well at one time. You can either count the passes or notice the guest, but you can't do both at once.Many—in fact, probably most people—will disagree with this statement,…
